Looks nice, but so did D3. SC2:HotS was too short, and it looks like D3:RoS will follow the same path: 1 act and 10 levels. I'm fine with there being only one new class, but I don't like how it's probably going to turn into a "finish the campaign in 3h" title.

You thought Sc2:HotS was too short >.<. I have no idea how you cannot be happy about this i mean they have a lot to learn from with D3's release but D3 was far from bad...

Seriously, I was thinking up a design that involved turning all the D2 classes into D3 followers, because the ability parity is just RIGHT THERE.

No word at all. There is more focus an bigger customization of your own character, though (with the new paragon attribute system and transmog). Though, I could ask of course a dev in the following days.

Is it bad that i never actually hated the shit out of D3's story... People shit on it to no end just as they do with WoW's story elements yet here we are. I understand that Diablo 3's biggest weakness was probably its length but there is no other game at all that touches it story wise (in this type of game). The only thing i hated was probably Deckard Cains death.

SC2:HotS, once you complete the campaign (1 week in relax mode) is over. Multiplayer didn't change enough (small changes to the races, no new game modes or options), and custom maps are still as dead as 2 years ago.

The number of players is small, too, and most of those who remain are competitive league players.

One of D3's errors is that it's too short, and now they give 1 act for the expansion and 10 new levels, when it should have been 20 levels and 2-4 acts.

Also, map randomization, which is one of D3's biggest problems since it affects replayability itself in a huge manner, is still a problem that hasn't been adressed well enough yet.

Tyrael's rankled my whiskers ever since I figured out that the principality of Justice was the most likely angel to flout the rules. Other than that, Imperius seems to have about as much character as a plank of wood with a frowny face drawn on and Malthael turning lolinsane is even more tedious than it is predictable.

I mean don't get me wrong, the Crusader looks neat and what not, and Diablo 3 definitely needed a Knight/Paladin type class added. But I was really thinking with the whole "Reaper of Souls" thing, that perhaps Necromancers or some type of Necromancy related class would be involved (Str. based, shield using Death Knight/Death Guard type character).

Besides, perhaps it's a false hope, and adding the Crusader currently brings a balance of 2 Str classes, 2 Dex classes and 2 Int classes. But I assume they will come out w/ a 2nd Diablo 3 expansion, so having say another Int using class added in Reaper of Souls (Necromancer!) and then adding in the Second expansion a Dex. based class and another Str. based class balances it out (3 Str, 3 Dex, 3 Int). . .

I'm grasping at straws, I know. . .just was hoping since Diablo II: Lord of Destruction added 2 additional classes, maybe so would an expansion for Diablo 3.

There is potential.. There will be quite a few things they have not told us about and will be saving for Blizzcon.

Also: Did Tyrael rebuild the Horadric Order after Diablo's defeat?

This, and for me, I hate when they try and pull the "D1-2 was all diablos master plan all along!" When it was obviously something they pulled out of their asses from the start, and a million other lesser reasons that make me hate the story. Including, but not limited too, everything.

Well, I didn't notice anything like that. We'll see.

Anyway, heading out for the evening, hence, will continue answering questions later, if there are any.

Malthael wants the black soul stone? Why? Could it be because he is lolinsane?

How did he become the grim reaper? Will it even be explained? Because we still never got an explanation as to how Tyrael went from angel to human.

Where were they hiding the Black soulstone, and why was it so easy to find? Is it because lolplot?

A lot of "new" gameplay features, and by that I mean very little new gameplay features.

Environments look really "new", and by that I mean they look the same. (Which is still pretty cool, I love Westmarch)

I noticed Impirius at the very start of the cinematic with the other angels looking at the black soulstone. He's already lolmad, how long until he goes lolinsane too and changes his title to "Angel of the Apocalypse!", thus kicking off the next D3 expansion?
Old Gods did it. Bonus points for probably ending up half true with some demon possessing or manipulating him.

We're a bunch of Lore nerds. We would talk about Jaina taking a crap into Sylvanas' mouth if there was no other story. Half of us probably don't even like Diablo in general. And HOW is this Teufel-person not dead yet? Is it the demon-equivalent of this guy:

?

Also: nice to see where Frostmourne went. Didn't expect it to be reforged into scythes though.

I think only the most naive of us thought he wasn't going to go lolinsane.
